In the coming years, we will be increasingly familiar with the process of Maritime Spatial Planning as we look to simultaneously harness the energy of the winds and the seas and protect our marine environment from overexploitation, whilst continui

The study provides an overview of general impacts of the development of offshore wind farms and other marine renewables on the European fishing sector.
Governments are searching for institutional designs that enable coordination of sea-uses in a more systematic and integrated manner. Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is presented as such an approach for improved coordination.
This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, is a test of the CEAF modelling tool (Common Environmental Assessment Framework) to quantitatively assess the cumulative impacts of piling for offshore wind farm construction on the harbour porpoise
This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, is a test of the CEAF modelling tool (Common Environmental Assessment Framework) that reports calculations on the cumulative collision and mortality displacement incidence of four seabird species (R
This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, provides an overview of the similarities and differences between North Sea countries regarding current SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) and EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) contents wit
This case study was developed as part of the SIMCelt project to complement three other case studies which explored how transboundary interaction is approached in the Celtic Seas.
Dutch MSP process
This practice shows how safety distances can be calculated between areas used for shipping and offshore wind farms.

Offshore wind farms in the North Sea are being built close to gas and oil platforms. These platforms get visited regularly by helicopters with the goal to pick up staff members or to deliver supplies.

Offshore wind energy is one of the renewable energy sources for the Netherlands with large potential. Currently the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of offshore wind energy is much higher than the market price of energy.
This practice analyses the effects and scoial costs of pile driving for offshore wind farms, seismatic research and shipping on underwater noice and the consequences for mammel behaviour.
This guidance document has been created for the Baltic Sea Region, which would specifically target the impacts of offshore wind farms on biodiversity in the more Northern parts of the Baltic Sea (marine areas of Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Latvia
